this too shall pass…in 30 minutes.
People love to tell you that “it is what it is” like this is some kind of secret that’s going to change your life. But I would like to let these people in on another secret, the fact that the things that are happening right now are happening right now is not a secret. It’s not even an inside joke, or an outside joke, but a statement so indisputable that it really doesn’t need to ever be said again or in the first place. If these people are looking for more ways to confound their friends with obviousness here are some they might try:
The present is now.
The past is what happened before.
The past? It already happened, and it’s over. (see #2)
The future comes later.
Prediction can be difficult.
The amount of control you have over the future is either some or almost none at all.
The way you act is how you are acting.
There are cats. Lots of cats.
That cloud looks like a collection of rabbit tails.
What will be will be. I promise. (see #1)
Look, sky. (I know I already said that, but there’s so much of it)
Pomeranians are cute.
There is no spoon
People can be loud.
Travel? Yes I like it. It’s good for you even when it’s hard. And when it gets hard, just remember…
It is what it is.
